Two Successful Neuters

Thankfully Patrick's neuter went well. They even let us bring him home at 1:30 instead of 4:00. He is very tender and a lot more whiny than Jack was. I think it has to do with the fact that Jack just hunkered down and rested the whole day and Patrick wants to be a part of everything. Either way, the vet people were super nice and helpful. Our last major vet thing for the year (barring disaster) is Heart Worm testing. Apparently it is becoming more prevalent in California. They are going in two weeks for the test and then it should be a whole year until we need to go back!

In other dog related news, Jack is making great strides with his confidence. We had the two best walks of our relationship today. No pulling and no shying at on coming people. He walked happily on a loose leash, listening and responding to my commands. He also played willingly with some company we had over last night. When they came over we told them just to ignore him and pretend he wasn't there. Within 15 minutes he was like "Hey, PICK ME!". Last time these people were here he was so afraid of them he peed on the carpet and the couch. Horrible and embarrassing. The trainer is helping me with ways to make him feel comfortable and adjust better to new situations. It seems to be working in all areas of Jack's life! GO JACK!

I'm posting very baby puppy pictures of the boys since they are growing up so fast. *sob*

Glad to hear it all went ok at the vets. Jack is coming on in leaps and bounds.
